Time was when pro-choice advocates would bristle at being called “pro-abortion.” Since then the abortion debate has become so contentious that terms like abortion pride are bandied about and women on the Left boast about the number of abortions they’ve had.
One of the ugliest displays of this warped mentality occurred on April 9 at the University of Texas at San Antonio. The pro-life group Students for Life had erected a symbolic cemetery with pink crosses to represent potentially promising lives cut short. The display was part of a spring Planned Parenthood Truth Tour across college campuses.
Young women from the university’s Students United for Planned Parenthood group had prepared for the event and showed up brandishing signs reading “I Stand with Planned Parenthood.” But rather than remain respectfully confined to their own space where they could quietly make their argument, they marched through the pro-life display, trampling the crosses, and shouting. When one of the demonstrators jubilantly declared, “It’s a fetus graveyard!” another said, “Look, there’s mine right there,” while yet others chanted, “Stop, hey, hey, what’s that sound? All the fetuses are in the ground!”
But it didn’t stop there. One student in the crowd can heard boasting that she loves having sex and aborting babies, while another wondered aloud “What if we pissed in the fetus graveyard?”
The event took on some of the character of an old-fashioned pep rally, but instead of students rooting for the home team, this obscene protest was intended to diminish the sanctity of human life.
